The Greek press is closely following the Presidential Election to be held on 28 May.
Kathimerini newspaper published a remarkable article on the future of Turkish-Greek relations.
According to the report, Greece considers Erdogan’s re-election on Sunday as certain.
Athens now wishes to take concrete steps to improve relations between the two countries.
Athens awaits election results
It is stated that Kiriakos Mitsotakis, the former Prime Minister of Greece and Chairman of the New Democracy Party, wants to meet with Erdogan as soon as possible if he wins the second round of the election on 25 June.
The newspaper included the claim that the meeting of the two leaders would most likely take place at the NATO summit.
In the article, it was emphasized that the NATO summit, which will take place in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, on July 11-12, can host this meeting.
“Lack of personal contact with President Erdogan is a problem for Athens”
The primary goal of Athens is to actively activate direct mutual communication channels with Ankara.
It is claimed that Miçotakis wanted the post-earthquake normalization process to evolve into rapprochement.
It is also commented that the lack of personal contact with President Erdogan poses a problem for the Greek side.
If a mutual communication channel is opened between the two leaders, it is considered that progress can be made in matters such as exploratory contacts, political dialogue and positive agenda.
